Ramona Lisa Pizza

Outstanding garlic Parmesan chicken wings from Ramona Lisa Pizza!

Rubio’s

May 8, 2020 – Outstanding ‘rona takeout from Rubio’s! I ordered one of my faves, the “Burrito Especial” with grilled chicken. Made with fresh guacamole, citrus rice, black beans (omitted), roasted chipotle salsa, salsa fresca and chipotle sauce. Served with a side of tortilla chips, $8.79. I really appreciate how the burrito bottom doesn’t blow out. They are very well constructed. I was able to eat the whole thing without getting any on my shirt.

Mi Ranchito Taco Shop

I don’t usually order burritos at Mi Ranchito but this chicken asada burrito was excellent! ‘Rona snacks drive thru on April 23, 2020. I’ve often said the best take out is sub sammichs, burritos and Asian food.

My Favorite Vegetable

Excellent homemade mac & cheese with a panko crumb topping!

Ramona Lisa Pizza

April 19, 2020 – Outstanding Italian food delivered from Ra-Mona Lisa’s! They were offering free delivery (in SDCE) during all the ‘rona mess. Ordering online via their website was very easy and highly customizable. I ordered one of their excellent Stromboli’s (highly recommended if you’ve never tried). For my son, an order of cheese ravioli that includes garlic bread and a side salad (I ate the salad). I have to say, I’ve never seen such small cucumbers. Gail had one of their hot deli sammiches. Everything was great, thoughtfully packaged, hot & fresh tasting. Payment was very easy on the website with credit card where you can include tip and whatnot. Also was able to use their coupon code for 5% off. Food delivered 5 minutes ahead of their quoted timeframe of 45 minutes.

Detroit Pizza

Continuing to perfect our homemade Detroit-style pizza! This is a style of pizza developed back in the day in Detroit, MI. It is a rectangular pizza that has a thick, crisp crust and toppings to the edge. A ton of cubed cheese is what makes this pie. Special pan available from Amazon (LloydPans).

Los Amigos

April 15, 2020 – Los Amigos in SDCE for takeout ‘rona snacks today. There’s a lot I don’t like from this taco shop but their burritos and tacos have been consistently good. Had an excellent carne asada burrito with absolutely no oral extractions. Purists may scoff, but I really like the addition of shredded lettuce and that green mayonnaisey guacamole.

Mi Ranchito Taco Shop

April 3, 2020 – Today’s ‘rona snacks from Mi Ranchito! I really appreciate them keeping their drive-thru open. Had another great parking lot picnic today. Their flautas are among the best in town.

Meat Monsters Grill

April 1, 2020 – Kudos to A&S Catering and BBQ for being open at Meat Monsters Girl! Had an outstanding lunch today. Smoked beef shoulder sammich plus side for only $8. The beef was a little tough but had a remarkable smoked flavor and great bark. If you’ve never tried their bacon mac & cheese, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. It’s so good, you’re going to cry when you eat it! They’re open for takeout right now, every other day from noon to 7pm (or until they run out of food).

Homemade Hamburgers

We have finally perfected our homemade crispy shoestring onion recipe! Thanks to a good buttermilk soak and some lovin’ from Lady FoodObs. Makes the perfect burger topper.
